Reclaiming Your Centre: Breath, Movement, Presence

Wed March 07, 2018 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Mindfulness is the ability to become fully present in this moment, in a particular way, with a non-judgmental attitude. – Jon Kabat-Zinn

This workshop, led by registered art therapist Suzanne Thomson, is suitable for students being introduced to mindfulness for the first time as well as for those with previous mindfulness experience. It is an invitation to befriend who you are now, in this moment, at this time, through the medium of clay.

Mindfulness is about learning to pay attention to the present moment with openness, curiosity, and compassion.

In this two-hour workshop, we will explore clay as a medium for deepening our experience of the present moment. In an open studio practice, we will learn to focus attention on the dance between breath and clay, awakening to our present moment experience through the senses.

The emphasis will be on the process of working with clay while not being attached the product we create.

Everyone will be invited to take their clay home to continue to develop a mindfulness practice.
